Exceptional research facilities

UNT’s College of Engineering students are preparing to solve many of today’s problems through hands-on learning in cutting edge facilities and labs. Students work with some of the most modern equipment in the nation.


Center for Advanced Research and Technology

The CART facility is one of the most sophisticated of its kind for research involving materials synthesis and analysis, from atomic to macro scales.

"If you’re interested in doing undergraduate research, just walk around the building and look at the project posters on the walls. If you see something you want to be part of, just call or show up in the professor’s office. They are so friendly and open."
